Gorillas are some of the most powerful and striking animals, not only for their size and force, but also for their gentle human like behavior. They are so similar to humans. Gorillas maintain families and the family stays bound for life and spends most of its time together eating, sleeping, playing and relaxing as well as building nests to sleep in. They express emotion just like humans. They can laugh, chuckle, cry and scream as well.
The gorilla’s hand looks almost identical to a human hand and every gorilla has unique fingerprints just like humans.
I’m always sad when I see them locked in a zoo but maybe it isn’t such a bad thing because they are endangered in their natural habitat and at least they are safe in the zoo.
There are some organisations working for the safety of gorillas in their natural habitat. How you can help: check out The Gorilla Organization and don’t forget to visit the shop, where you can do many useful things like adopt a gorilla, give the gorillas a tree and much more.
They also organize funny events to collect money: The Great Gorilla Run
